Family Fun: How Do You Party?

Halloween is a hugely social celebration; many people participate by trick or treating in their neighborhoods, pumpkin patch hayrides, or visiting haunted houses. Whether you’re celebrating Halloween, looking forward to the winter holidays, or planning something else, the big question is: how do you celebrate safely in this season of Covid?

For Halloween, Good Housekeeping offers up 15 festive ideas – we especially like numbers 6, 12, and 14! The CDC lists of low, moderate, and higher risk activities may help you decide the best way to celebrate with family, friends, or neighbors. Don’t forget the safest way to share your Halloween costumes and festivities – upload a picture to our completely virtual Fall Festivities Photo Contest – you could even win prizes! 

Once the winter holidays arrive, it’s a bit tougher to get together outside – but there’s still fun to be had! How about a sledding party? That’s just one idea on this list from Peaceful Dumpling, and there’s a lot more fun to be found at Postable

Of course, please keep in mind the official recommendations from the CDC, which are especially helpful if you are responsible for planning any large events this season!
